The Boys and Girls Club of Central Minnesota received a donation of over $51,000 from St. Cloud Subaru Monday afternoon. Through St. Cloud Subaru's "Share the Love" event the dealership donated $250 from each new car sold between mid-November 2016 through January 1, 2017.
This week in our "Behind the Scenes" series on WJON, we see what goes into renovating a former toy store into the new home of a local car dealership. After nine years in the same small location, St. Cloud Subaru is moving on up to bigger and better things just down the road.
We now know what the plans are for the former "Toys R Us" location in St. Cloud. St. Cloud Subaru has bought the building and lot, and have plans to move in later this year. Owner Scott Bement says they'll take over the building by late February, and will start remodeling the building in March.
On this Earth Day today (Tuesday), the city of Waite Park and St. Cloud Subaru are teaming-up to make it easier to recycle in the city's parks. Public Works Director Bill Schluenz says the car dealership is donating 32 recyling bins for their parks, and city hall.
